Reluctant Descent

High Rolls/Mountain Park
This morning we took a short hike on the Bridal Veil Falls Trail before heading back down the mountain to the lower desert, where it's supposed to hit 98F today; that's about 16 degrees hotter than it was going to be in High Rolls.  First thing I did when we got here was to turn on the water to the evaporative cooler so we could get started lowering the temp in the house.  Hope we can get back into the Sacramento Mountains again soon so we can temporarily leave this heat behind.
